I’m running. Bohemian dress store through dropshipping. I keep getting people messaging me saying “your dress is a copy of _________ brand”. So if all of the dresses on my website are copies of another brand or designer, how am I suppose to know which are and which aren’t? There’s millions of patterns on clothing, am I not allowed to stock a chinese brand that makes clothes with the same patterns as other brands?

Hey, there.


Dallas here from the Social Care Team. We were just talking on this forum post here.


For this, I suggest you reach out to a legal professional to ensure that you're following all the rules in your area. As much as I would love to help, I'm not trained in anything legal so they would be the best person for that.


I'm sorry that I can't be of direct assistance in this case, but that will be the safest option for you in order to avoid potentially bigger problems down the road.
